If you’re a BlackBerry® user, you can now wirelessly download audiobooks from our eMedia catalog website. On February 25th OverDrive released the public beta version of BlackBerry audiobook app, which enables users to download MP3 audiobooks directly to their BlackBerry smartphone. The app joins the previously released versions for Windows Mobile® and Android™.
The beta version of OverDrive’s audiobook app for BlackBerry is exclusively available on the OverDrive Media Console page on OverDrive.com. Once the full release is available, you and your patrons will be able to find it in BlackBerry App World. If you should receive support questions while the BlackBerry app is in beta, please send them along toOverDrive’s Support Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to the audiobook apps that are now available, digital book apps for iPhone® are planned in the near future. Stay tuned for more information on enhancements to the mobile user experience.
I downloaded this app via my blackberry while working the Digital Bookmobile. It took a little while for the phone to register the app but once it did I was able to checkout a eaudio book and download it to the phone. I discovered no earphones where necessary to listen to the book, you can hear it through the phone’s speakers.
